Winemaker's Notes:

Soft and full-flavoured, it shows intense varietal character on the nose - ripe plums, cloves and spices interwoven with fragrant chocolate and truffle notes. The generous palate shows sweet berry, cherry and spice characters.
"
"The 2005 Grenache Bush Vine (100% Grenache) exhibits classic strawberry, framboise, licorice, and pepper aromas, medium body, dusty tannin, and enough spice and fruit to last for another 2-3 years." - The Wine Advocate"
